    I think Willie will want to go eat that Subway sandwich in peace, away from the camera's glare. This bad start could bury them in the division before May!

    The Mets definitely aren't poor, they're just not very good.

    Horacio Ramirez, Atl

    Pedro Martinez, NYM
    John Smoltz, Atl

    Andy Pettitte, Hou
    Tom Glavine, NYM

    The Mets next three pitching matchups. Not horrible, but no gimmies either.
    They are underdogs (-155) today, would figure to be favorites tomorrow, but probably dogs again on Monday.

    And so far, not very well managed, either.

    Don't look now but the Mets starter just gave up a grand slam.

    A David Wright muff loads the bases in the second, and Brian Jordan hits a grand salami.

    Has a manager ever been fired before the home opener?

    This Heilman fellow does have potential but is very inconsistent. He'll be back in AAA before we know it.

    Re: Oh, the poor, poor Mets....

    The Mets problem has their bullpen. Their closer Braden Looper hasn't pitched an out yet.

    Note that our old pal Heredia just got out of trouble.

    Heredia looks about 20 pounds heavier in that Mets uniform. And keep in mind that he got out of trouble by allowing a hard-hit single, only to have the Braves runner thrown out at home.

    It's so much better watching the Run Fairy™ pitch for another team.

    And seeing Heredia pitch to Mondesi gave me a chuckle.

    I've been flipping channels. Why is Looper in when the Mets are down by three? Does he just need work?

    Re: Oh, the poor, poor Mets....

    Looper's ERA is currently 36.00.

    Well they pulled one out today. The bats finally woke up and gave Willie his first win. Now they will probably lose 2 out of 3 to the Astros.

    Pedro had to pitch a complete game to lock down the win. How many of those you think he had in him? Poor Mets with no bullpen... they'll be giving us Cameron for Stanton by the All-Star break.

    Pedro's arm looks great in his first 2 starts. Look for him to throw up a mid 2 ERA this year w/ 250-300 K's.....

    That's great, but unfortunately we might need Stanton by that time too. Remember the ALCS.

    Congrats to Willie on win number one. I hope we sweep them during the Subway Series.

    Re: Oh, the poor, poor Mets....

    I went to the game in Atlanta on Friday. 3-1 Braves victory with Thomson and Zambrano dueling it out.

    Victor had a rough first where he gave up 2 due to walks, then settled down.

    Piazza hit a bomb deep to Left Center, but I left unimpressed with their lineup. Reyes is going to have a banner year at short. He was slapping the ball all over. Great in the leadoff.

    Beltran was a Braves killer last year with Houston, but did nothing impressive Friday. (His HR yesterday was a bit different).

    To me Piazza is the only one that looks like he is in form. Every ball he hit was smashed. But come on, Cliff Floyd in the 5 hole..., I don't think he even made contact the whole night.

    If their pitching doesn't keep them in it, they could be in a lot of trouble. Willie definitely has his hands full.
